The link below is to a video produced by a student group called Reclaim Colby. It shows students interrupting the college's official February 27 ceremonial celebration of its 200th anniversary in the school's chapel. When college president William "Bro" Adams finishes his speech, student government vice president Kareem Kalil walks to the podium to introduce the (unplanned) student speakers, to the cheers of students sitting in a block of red t-shirts.
In this week's Phoenix, I review a show with Chris Teret, Man Forever, and the Guitar Cloud. (I'll post the link when it's live online.)Here's the link.
I shot some video of each of the elements of that show, and here they are:

Yes, Emilia Dahlin is back! She was elsewhere - go find her and ask about it, really - but has returned, and is playing out, with some new stuff and some old stuff. Check out a clip from her Saturday evening gig at Portland Lobster Company:
Maine has an online "freedom watchdog," available on YouTube, with very interesting viewpoints and questions. While perhaps more right-of-center than others, Jarrod LeBlanc nevertheless takes a fairly even-keeled approach to issues, and is direct and clear with his concerns.

Check it out - and it might even add fuel to that "tunnels-under-Portland" rumor...
You may have seen a video about same-sex marriage in Ireland. But check out this one about it in Maine, featuring Portland's own Jill Barkley:
Found online: this 1993 video gem, demonstrating the genius of (the now late) Manny Versoza. The song can be heard - by local-music aficionados - on the inaugural volume of the Greetings from Area Code 207 series.

Yes, so we're a little behind in posting this, but better late than never: 5000 people went to a concert on September 13 in Oxford. And they really wanted to see and hear this band called Dead Season:
Here's what the Obama campaign staff are really up to today, courtesy of UltimateImprov.com:
Republican vice-presidential nominee has blamed the Alaska state troopers on her gubernatorial protection detail for her family's continued persecution of her ex-brother-in-law, Alaska state trooper Mike Wooten, which has turned into "Troopergate." She did so last week, in a segment of an interview with a reporter from WMUR, the ABC affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Richard Pelletier of Juke Joint Video here in town stopped by today and dropped off a video of Civil Disturbance live at the Station, from back in June. Take a look:
The loonies at the Oddfellow Theater and EepyBird.com are up to even more mischief. This time, they're in an office environment.
We have just one question: are those reusable? (Or at least recyclable?)
